Finding the right school or college can be a very rewarding process, but at times the experience can be overwhelming. At Matlack Educational Consulting, we personalize the search and application process to reflect each child’s unique strengths and interests to make the process less stressful, more manageable, and more fulfilling for students and their families.

Student with a group

While our ultimate goal is to help our students  identify those  schools and colleges that are the best fit for them and to help them to put together the strongest application they can, we believe the process itself is also important. These moments present an tremendous opportunity in the student’s life to take an accounting of what they have achieved, where their talents and interests are leading, and who they are becoming and want to become. We strongly believe that for a student to really know what school of college will ultimately be the right place for them, they need to know first who they are, where their strengths lay, and what is truly important to them.

Throughout the school and college application process we take the time to teach our clients critical life skills such as time management and effective decision-making while also encouraging their self-confidence and self-awareness. In the end, a student who know themselves well will be able to identify the school or college where they will flourish.

We have provided knowledgeable, individualized guidance since 2004 and have placed students in independent schools and colleges around the country. Our extensive suite of services includes:

  • Support and guidance through each step of the college search and application process.
  • Support and guidance through each step of the independent day and boarding school search and application process.
  • Hourly consultation and support with specific aspects of the school or college process.

The best way to find out if we are the right consultants to work with your family is to give us a call. We’d be delighted to tell you more about ourselves and our services and to hear your thoughts about the next steps in your child’s educational journey.
